My Students

I am blessed to teach students from Kindergarten through 5th grade in my STEM lab. No matter the grade level, the students in my school are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions!

They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

They come to STEM lab each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow as leaders both personally and academically. Their constant love of learning is a true inspiration.

My Project

It is crucial for children to develop their skills within the STEM disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is also crucial for students to develop their literacy skills. Literacy skills such as reading and researching are vital to understanding STEM concepts and success in STEM. In order to bring reading skills and STEM together, I am requesting picture books that I can integrate into my STEM lessons. Bringing STEM and literacy together through engaging picture books will help students make connections for deeper student understandings as they construct, build, invent, design, solve problems, engineer, tackle science subjects and so much more.
